Questions to ask your Old Timey Adventures camper (Thursday)

If you’re curious about what your child has been up to in camp this week, here are some questions to get the conversation started…

  • Wednesday we worked on our primitive fire building skills.  What was “old timey” about the fire that we built?  What was NOT “old timey” about the fire we built? (Hint: the yummy treat we roasted over it)  Why would you need to know how to build fires back then?  
  • We have found an incredible number of animals this week especially reptiles!  Which animal find was your favorite? What made it your favorite?  Where did the group find it? 
  • Thursday we learned to tie a couple of different knots.  What were the knots called?  Do you think you could tie them with string or rope at home?  Show me.  Which one is more difficult to tie?
